Would you listen to Forces of Nature again? Why?
I probably wouldn't listen to this book again, however some sections/chapters of this book were fascinating and would probably warrant a re-listen.
What other book might you compare Forces of Nature to, and why?
A short history of nearly anything by Bill Bryson. Although Bryson's book has the edge for me as Bryson was able to explain the physics without reference to a diagram. It was really annoying that in this book the narration was clearly referring to equations or diagrams that existed in the print version. So this audible was lacking supporting material.Some bits you can visualise in your mind what is being discussed which is fine. However. for some of the concepts being explained due to the technicality it's just not possible to follow without the supporting diagram or formula.
Have you listened to any of Samuel West’s other performances? How does this one compare?
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Physics answers the questions to your questions on nature.
Any additional comments?
Although I had negative comments about the lack of supporting documents, I still think this is a very good work and worth listening to if you have interests in Physics. If you have no prior knowledge of physics probably no worth listening to just yet, Or might be worth listening to if you have seen the TV series.

Brian Cox and Andrew Cohen have the ability to explain science in a fashion that still maintains depth, yet you don't need to be a scientist to understand it. This is simpler said than done, specially when you explain all of what is out there from its simplest components.
The authors passion is carried vividly in this book, that even the few equations that are provided sound like poetry.
This book is not too simple, but definitely a gem. It is yet another up to date explanation of science in the cutting edge, where progress is moving faster than books can be written.
Highly recommended for those who want to be informed of where we are and are willing to strain their mind just a little, the lovers of science.

You will need to engage your brain to follow these complex concepts, so do not expect an easy listen. That said, once you have shifted gear to listen very intently, West will carefully deliver Cox's fascinating explanations of the forces of nature to the average person who is not well-versed in physics. If you are, however, this book may be too elementary for you and you might find this book too pedestrian. If you do get in over your head, just listen and pick up what you can!
